Everything seems within easy walking reach: the seemingly endless beach and the vibrant shopping strip brimming with cafeÌs, restaurants, a couple of great pubs and a desirable range of shops and services.
Apollo Bay puts you in the heart of the coastal action. The Twelve Apostles, the Great Ocean Walk and the best waterfalls of the Otways are within a short drive.
Amble along the beach to the harbour precinct and watch the local fishing boats unloading the day’s catch. Score yourself the freshest seafood at the Fisherman’s Co-op and cook up a feast. Or order it ready-prepared in a sumptuous meal at one of the many local restaurants.
If it’s action you’re after, you’re in the right place. Try Argo buggy rides, a scenic flight over the Twelve Apostles, surfing lessons, sea kayaking, mountain biking, fishing and boating.
Out and About
On Saturday morning, make your way to the foreshore for the community market to pick up distinctive local produce, or arts and crafts. The farmers market is a bonus on the third Sunday of each month and anytime is the right time to wander through the Shell and Apollo Bay Historical Museum or art-gaze at the gallery. Explore the beach rockpools at Marengo and Skenes Creek or, in summer, join a guide from Parks Victoria for a fascinating interpretive walk along the coastline.
